I was recently trying to get up an icy hill with my 2002 Ford Focus wagon automatic; so the wheels were spinning at times. I kept an eye on the tachometer to make sure that it didn't rev too high; however the arrow did briefly almost get up to 5 on the dial of which 7 is the highest. Could I have damaged my engine? The car has only 50,000 original miles.
